Police arrest man after 'Killer Clown' incident at Brunel University

Police have arrested a 19 year old man after a so-called 'Killer Clown' incident at Brunel University in Uxbridge.

The online craze involves people dressing up as clowns in order to scare passers by, often filming the event and sharing it on social media.

Officers said the man is in custody at a police station in West London.

Police in Uxbridge investigating a series of public order offences at Brunel University on Kingston Lane have made an arrest.

It was reported that between 19:30hrs on Saturday, 8 October and 01:30hrs on Sunday, 9 October, a man dressed in a clown costume had deliberately frightened a number of people.

The incident was reported to police on Tuesday, 11 October. On the same day, a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

He is currently in custody at a west London police station.

The man walked into Metro Bank in Uxbridge at 6am on Sunday to use a cash machine. But the door locked behind him which meant he was stuck.

Normally, customers can use their card to get in and out the building. He was eventually rescued by worker in a neighbouring coffee shop. Speaking to the Mirror, Sana Khan said:

He tried the handle of the door but it just wouldn't open.

He slid his card through a small gap between the doors but when I tried it, the door still wouldn't open.

I chatted to him and he seemed perfectly calm and relaxed and, when Metrobank's customer service department opened, I rang them and told them of the problem.
